Since I posted this last Saturday, I wanted to bump it up to make sure people got a chance to add their own recommendations and read the ones already submitted...
I've got books coming out of my ears. They are literally piling up on most surfaces of the house: end tables, in the bedroom, pretty much everywhere there's a flat surface. I'm so behind on my reading that it's not even funny. These are all books that I'm either actively reading or mean to read in the short-term.
And then I keep getting more, like the book that I got in the mail today, Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms, and Fertility Mattered, which I'm very excited to read (I heard the author on a local NPR show). These are all books sent by publishers and authors, so I am in no way complaining - I totally love it. I am an unabashed book whore extraordinaire.
Anyway, just like the eco cleaner roundup, I wanted to get your input about your favorite environmentally related books (purchased or borrowed from the library or elsewhere). You can give one or more answers if you like in any of the following categories:
1. Organic gardening/permaculture
2. Food or cooking related (slow food, eating local, etc.)
3. Green lifestyle
4. Climate change
5. Peak oil/transition
7. Frugal living/finances
8. Green economy/politics
9. Simple living
10. Green parenting
Feel free to add what you liked about the book, if you have time, for others to get an idea if this is something they would like to add to their reading list. These roundups are turning into great resources thanks to your input!
